User :   i woke up with a bad headache three days ago, first i rarely get them.
the pain seems to start at the back of my neck and waves over the top of my head to the front. i also have skin pain, it hurts to rub my skin but not to squeeze it, i have a slight cough, and am weak. a little nausea flares up now and than cant sleep because of the headache. i tried 600mg of motrin and alieve, nothing is touching this headache. there is no comfortable position to be in and now i am getting worried.
